Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority

Controls Over Overtime

Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA) provides public transportation services in Erie and Niagara Counties. We audited NFTA’s management and control of overtime, and found that it was generally effective. We found that NFTA had taken a number of actions to improve employee work schedules, reduce absenteeism and prevent overtime abuses, and as a result, made significant reductions in its overtime costs. We did identify the need for improvements in management controls over the overtime incurred by the NFTA’s Transit Police, but included our findings in a separate audit report addressing those issues.
